"Mediator": Do you think a woman can be president?
Sanders: Yep. *says why*
"Mediator": "Just to clarify did you tell Warren that a woman can't be a president?"
"Mediator": ""Okay, Warren, how did you feel after he said a woman can't be president?"
Warren: *never even talks about Sanders' statement and just talks about why a woman can be president*
The whole conversation came off like Warren knew Sanders never said that specific statement and was just using the misunderstanding/controversy to her benefit.
Obviously Sanders has never said "no woman can be president". That was not what was suggested.
Nevertheless it's seeming more and more unlikely for any democrat to win at this rate, considering how divided even the progressive faction of the left is. Trump is their unifying factor. Not any single one of the candidates.
A lot of Sanders supporters might be previous Independents and former non-voters also, in which case I'd say it's good that he seems to have changed their minds enough that they would at least consider voting for a Democratic nominee in the general if it is Bernie. I would say vote against the Republicans in the general no matter what because your vote is a tool that you use strategically but some people clearly see it differently.
However, I disagree that it is Sanders creating the division in the Party: Sanders is not saying anything differently compared to what he was saying 40 years ago because he's had the same principled stances for that same period but somehow that is divisive at this point? It's only divisive if your interests are being threatened by the kinds of policies he's proposing because he's not only the most popular Senator in the US currently but his policies resonate with people who usually either don't vote for Democrats or don't vote at all.
